Default What is a Super-Premium Dog Food?

I keep struggling with how too choose a dog food. Dog food
recommendations is a Tower of Babble frustration. Everybody has a
strongly held opinion that conflicts with everybody else's strongly
held opinions. Today I ran across this article
http://www.gooddogmagazine.com/dogfoodcosts.htm

The article divides dog foods into three classes economy, premium and
super-premium. What constitutes premium or super-premium. Is it just
the company putting any name/lable on it that they want, or are there
government standards defining these categories that are enforced by
some government agency?

Obviously if the company can put that label on without any regulation
it's meaningless. They could repackage Dog Chow and call it
"Fontano's Super-Premium Canine Diet."

"Beauty is in the eye of the beholder". Same thing applies here.
Pretty soon we'll be hearing about some company who claims that they
are a "SuperDuperUltraSuperPremiumMostBestestInTheWholeW ideUniverse"
type of food.

Basically you have grocery store foods, feed store foods, and premium
foods. Good luck trying to define what constitutes a "premium" vs a
"super-premium" food. What a person should look for is a food that
meets the nutrient profile of the lifestage/lifestyle of the pet; one
that is high in antioxidants and avoids nutrient excesses.
